霊感?- ESP?

去年の年末の株価から、今年に入って大暴落・・・。10%近くも値を下げてしまってます。サブプライムローン問題も、全然解決する兆しがなく、もう不況に突入してしまってると思うしかない状況。11月時点から200万円近くも損失してるけど、これ以上、株価が下がるのは黙って見てられない!と思って、今日、思い切って持ってる株(ミューチュアルファンド)を全部売り払った。代わりに短期国債を購入。幸運にも、今日は少し値を戻したのでキャピタルゲインもわずかながらアップ。

The stock prices have fallen almost 10% since last year. Subprime loan problems seem to be exacerbated and there is no doubt that economy has entered into recession. I lost almost $20,000 in stocks and couldn't wait and see my funds losing more value. So today I sold all my mutual funds. Instead, I purchased a short term treasury bond fund. Luckily, the stock market went up a bit today and my capital gain went up a bit accordingly, too.

というわけで、今日は一日中、株価が気になってそわそわ。仕事が手につかない一日だった。しかも、別件の大ニュース(来月にでも説明します)も飛び込んできて、いつになくイベントフルな日。お客様とのディナーもあったのだけど、2日間、ジムに行ってなかったので、今晩、近所のジムへ。

That's why, I was so jittery today and couldn't focus on my work all day long. In addition, I got quite big news--I'll explain about this news in April. It was a really eventful day.

Tonight I had dinner with my clients, but since I didn't go to the gym last two days, I kicked my ass to hit the tread mill and lift some weights.

家を出るとき、とにかくいろんなことがあったなぁ~と回想しながら歩いてると、ふと、なんだか今日はこれだけでは終わらないような予感が。虫の知らせっていうか、第6感っていうか、霊感というか・・・。みょーに、誰かにジムで声を掛けられそうな予感。

When leaving my home, I recalled what happened today. Then, without any reasons, I thought something else was going to happen at the gym tonight. It was kind of the 6th sense. In Japanese, it's called "mushino shirase" which means a signal from insects. Or, it's called "reikan" which literally means a "ghost sense." It's a supernatural perception to foresee things. So tonight I had a feeling that I may be spoken to by someone at the gym.

ジムに到着したら、夜10時ということもあり、人もまばら。いつものメニューをこなしてると、やっぱり予感的中。突然Lukeに声を掛けられた。

When I got to the gym, there were not many people since it was already 10pm. I was doing routine work but my prediction was right. Luke spoke to me out of the blue.

Lukeに会うのはもう何年ぶり?ってくらいのご無沙汰。僕をホリデー・ガール呼ばわりした彼です。この回のブログをご覧あれ。この回のブログにもLukeが登場してる。多分、これが最後に会ったときだと思うから、かれこれ2年と4ヶ月ぶり・・・。Lukeは30歳になったとかで、去年、転職も果たして今はNPOで働いてるとか。時は流れる・・・。

It's been a few years since I saw him last. He called me a "holiday girl" a few years ago because he only called me up on holidays--because his then boyfriend had to work on holidays and Luke needed someone to hang out with. I wrote when we met in 2004 and 2005 in my past postings. So, it's been 2 years and 4 months since I saw him last... Last October he turned 30 years old, he said! He also switched a job last year to work for an NPO. Time flies...

それにしても、自分の霊感に驚き。株価も、今日、売り抜けておいて正解だといいのだけれど・・・。

At any rate, I was surprised by my own ESP. I hope that I was right about selling all my stocks today too.

 Born and raised in Japan, I decided to immigrate to the U.S. to pursue a more liberated gay life. I am mostly writing about gay-related news and gossip about male celebrities, LGBT issues in general, and sometimes personal bromance. Most of my posts are in Japanese, but I sometimes introduce Japanese television programs and gay-related cultural stuff in English. Feel free to leave comments in my blog. ;)
